NEW!

the three-pocketed zipper clutch a-go-go







these are a few inches wider and a bit taller than the original roundy-bottom. the front is one big zippered and lined pocket! and there are two roomy pockets inside. these work great as a clutch on their own, or for keeping bigger bags organized.
for the first batch, i made a few tough ruffles, and a few in mixed vintage fabrics.



... and two of them even have roller coasters on them!


ps- thank you manny for taking such great photographs for me.

hot diggity dang katie!
i freakin' love love love this bag!
holy goodness! i'm sad i missed the shop update and hope i can catch something this weekend... something just like this...
i know i absolutely need to have this... "three-pocketed zipper clutch a-go-go"! (i'm just a little obsessed tonight)

so, i went to, in my opinion, the trendiest shop in downtown northampton and the super hip lady working there went ga- ga over my tough ruffles! i was like... "yeah, i'm cool... i got tough ruffles!"

and, congratulations on being the featured seller on etsy. (it's about time)

i hope you have a lovely weekend lovely lady!

(can i be your third biggest fan? that's assuming there are two before me... hehe)

I love this new design! The three-pocketed zipper cluthes are soo cute. I love the one with mix of vintage ticking stripe canvas-ish type fabric and the back is a pretty vintage floral in aqua, green and cream, with hints of lavender and mustard...SO SAD..was sold by the time i knock on your shop. But im hopeful...that you will make more when you have the time!

Have a lovely merry weekend..i know your probly busy with sewing but please do get some rest and take good carez!

Dionne said...

These are all so lovely! I saw your Etsy feature. I am hoping my husbo will treat me with one of your bags :)

I was so excited to see that you had a shop update yesterday and then I saw that you are the Etsy featured seller----I was wondering, too, why you had yet to be featured! You deserve it so much, for the beautiful bags and purses and clutches and pencil cases you create and all your hard work, and for making the "madebyhank" experience such a treat from seeing your work in your shop, to opening the package with everything perfectly wrapped and often with a charming surprise.

Hope you get some rest and peaceful time this weekend and thanks for bringing more beauty into the world.

(And I have to agree----it is always better when one is a bit closer to the beach.)

I like your shoes (and your bags).

Bernadette Uzcategui said...

I am SO envious of your mad skills! Wow, congrats on the etsy feature; I love to see a fellow Philadelphia girl rocking her biz!

I know what I am putting on my b-day gift list....

elodee said...

Timmery said...

I can't wait to purchase my very own bag from you someday soon! Good work! :)
